Eadey History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



It was among those Anglo-Saxon tribes that once ruled over Britain that the name Eadey was formed. The name was derived from the son of Ede, as Edison, which was later shortened to Eadie. The surname Eadey originally derived from the Old English word Eade which referred to abundant riches.However, another reference claims that the name was derived from the Middle English name Edwy and the Old English word Eadwig which are composed of the elements ead meaning prosperity and wig which meant war.

The recorded variations of Eadey include Eadie, Eades, Edey, Eadey, Eddy, Edeson, Edison and others.
